LAS VEGAS (AP) — A man has been arrested in Las Vegas on multiple felony charges in an unprovoked attack aboard a regional transit bus that seriously injured a former U.S. Marine in his mid-60s.
Nathaniel Graves Jr., 26, was arrested Saturday and was being held Monday at the Clark County jail pending a court appearance Tuesday during which he is expected to have an attorney appointed to represent him on charges of battery, mayhem and abuse of an older or vulnerable person.
Police this month released bus security video of the Dec. 13 attack and issued a plea to identify the assailant who they said had his right eye removed after being punched and knocked unconscious. The name of the injured man wasn't made public.
Officials said the assailant first placed his legs across the veteran’s lap, then reacted when he pushed them away.
